Bella's Easter egg hunt was much more successful this year than last. Braxton didn't participate much though since he can't even roll over yet, let alone go searching for plastic eggs. Anyway, we decided to put stickers in most of the eggs instead of candy. That was the best $1.99 investment we have ever made.
Those stickers kept Bella quiet through the entire first session of General Conference, and she was still playing with them 10 hours later when it was time for bed. Yes, they were slathered on every surface in our house including carpet, couch, sibling, and our limbs, but she LOVED it. It took us half an hour to clean them up. The first thing she asked when she woke up this morning was, "Where did the stickers go?" They are in the garbage, Love.
We showed Bella how to do Cartwheels. I think she lacks the upper body strength, and a couple other things. I'm confident she'll figure it out sometime in the next couple years.
On another note: I've felt 10 times better than I thought I would recovering from a C-section, but every now and again I discover things that I can't really do anymore, like a cartwheel. The incision area is really tight, so I have to bend my legs when I do it. Bella will have to find someone else to show her how to do it right.
